We’ll be back says chairman Chansiri

Chairman Dejphon Chansiri has spoken of his hurt – coupled with immense pride – after watching our play-off final defeat on Saturday.
He said: “We came within one match of reaching the Premier League, which is arguably the pinnacle of the game.  So right now, I am hurting and so sorry that we could not take that final step and end our 16-year exile from the top flight. 

“But be assured of one thing – Sheffield Wednesday will be back. We will shake off this hurt, regroup over the summer and return with the intention of going all the way next season. And as your chairman, I pledge I will do everything I possibly can to ensure we do exactly that.”

He was also overwhelmed by the fantastic support of the 40,000 Wednesday fans at Wembley, saying: “You, the fans, deserve to be in the Premier League. You are Premier League. Almost everyone who was at Wembley on Saturday came away talking more about what they saw off the pitch rather than on it.

“I thought those scenes were incredible – I have never seen anything like it and neither have a lot of people who have been in football for many, many years. You are all a credit to yourselves and to our club and I would like to sincerely thank every single one of you for the truly remarkable way in which you supported the team.” 

He praised Carlos Carvalhal, his coaching staff and the players for going so close to getting us promotion and added: “We now need to harness those skills, re-focus all our efforts and ensure that together, on and off the pitch, we are ready to achieve what was denied us at Wembley but what I am sure you agree was still one of the most memorable occasions of our proud history.”
